Have you ever missed an opportunity that was meant for you? Have you ever lost something you knew was yours? Have you ever counted on something you knew was coming, but it never did? If so, could it be that you're overgeneralizing and allowing yourself to feel defeated, like you're a rag in a washing machine on high cycle? Cognitive Distortions like "All or Nothing Thinking" or "Overgeneralization" can rob you of your God destined life. Don't let it. Believe in your Best Days, and think your way to your best life!
Have you ever felt like giving up? Have you ever felt like you made a mistake and you just couldn’t forgive yourself? Have you ever felt like maybe you didn’t deserve forgiveness? Or maybe you felt like it was the end of the world? Do you think so much in black and white that you just couldn’t see any other way? It could be because All or Nothing thinking is dangerous and it’ll do that to you.
All or nothing thinking can keep you from achieving goals, from living your best life, from forgiving others, from seeing opportunities, and from forgiving yourself. Especially because of today’s craziness of censorship, race bating, conspiracy theories, desensitization of violence, and the seemingly ease to commit violence by some, it is imperative that we be our best selves, strong of mind and body. What is all or nothing thinking? How does it hurt you? And what can you do to stop yourself from engaging in all or nothing thinking? I’ve got some tips for you here.
More than ever in my life time, I feel the need for courage is ever more important. How do we cultivate courage? We make ourselves aware of what's going on, we get involved, we take care of each other and ourselves. We strengthen our minds with knowledge, with positive thoughts and messages. We inspire each other with stories of courage and overcoming obstacles. We believe in our best days, and we seek to make tomorrow better than today! This is an introduction to my new series on the Cultivate Courage channel, Momi's Minutes. Please join me as I explore my way to my best life!
